Bennett, (Sir) William Sterndale
The reasons for Schumann's perhaps extravagant praise are now a little easier to judge, since some of Sterndale Bennett's music has been recorded. Undoubtedly his powers as a composer were lessened by the load of official work he undertook. In his lifetime his most popular works were the pastoral cantata The May Queen (Leeds Fest. 1858) and the oratorio The Woman of Samaria (Birmingham Fest. 1867). Other works incl. ov. The Naiads. Schumann's Symphonic Studies are ded. to him.
